President Cyril Ramaphosa declared his confidence in his ability to win the 2024 general election.
Locals flocked to the Meadowlands ‘ Thembalethu Primary School in large numbers to register as Ramaphosa spoke to potential voters there.
In advance of the 2024 general elections, more than 23, 000 voting locations across the nation were open all weekend.
Residents of Chiawelo expressed a range of feelings.
Residents warmly welcomed the African National Congress ( ANC ) delegation on one end of the spectrum and praised the ruling party.
Some disgruntled voters, on the other hand, think Soweto has been forgotten.
Ramaphosa and other politicians visiting communities so close to elections, according to resident Tshepo Tsolosane, are being dishonest.
It’s too late, in my opinion. For thirty years, you have ignored us. For thirty years, you did n’t want to know for us. You’re interested in learning more about our situation now. What have you been up to lately?
The ANC president stated that the region’s service delivery crisis remained a top priority despite some opposition from the local community.

As voter registration began on Saturday, Economic Freedom Fighters ( EFF ) leader Julius Malema declared he was not acting in” African National Congress ( ANC ) territory.”
Malema checked on registration at the Chiawelo Hitekani Primary School, where President Cyril Ramaphosa was raised.
When Julius Malema, the leader of the EFF, arrived at Hitekani Primary, he made fun of ANC supporters.

This, according to Malema, is just a coincidence.
There is no Ramaphosa here because I am a member of this station and am not here to see him. I visited these people who are present. I do n’t care what Ramaphosa does or where he votes; I have nothing to do with him.
I’m here to reassure the EFF’s ground forces that they are unafraid of anyone and that no one can stop them from working.
At the same time, Ramaphosa was anticipated to meet with supporters of the African National Congress ( ANC ) at the nearby Thembalethu Primary School.
